1920s Golden Arrow poster stressing Pullman train and Compagnie Wagons Lits participation. It also mentions intermediate port of Calais. The artist was William Spencer Bagdatopoulos.


This is a low resolution image. If you have a higher resolution or, better, a quality hard copy that we could scan to our own exacting standards, please let us know.

We believe it to be a 1920s piece (from the fashion) but have no better date than that, so if you're able to fill that gap we'd love to hear from you.

This is a good example of railway companies on both sides of La Manche using the same design and artwork for their own individual purposes. The French equivalent for the Chemins de Fer du Nord is shown here.
